Names -> Cool Band Names -> G, Page 3

Whenever I hear a cool phrase somewhere, I like to exclaim "That would make a cool band name". This page is a list of such names.

I can not verify whether these names have been taken yet or not. If your band happens to already use one of these names sorry. If you want to use a name you see here, you'll need to verify it's not already in use.

Submitted by:
Gov'ment Came and Took My Baby On an episode of Family Guy, Peter said this to Brian after smoking crack. JeReMy
The Government Because you can make an awsome song like ' The Government rules our country. Therefore we rule!!' Flapdoodle1112
Government Cheese My dad came up with the name. Besides, you could be in conjunction with Mayor McCheese (that guy who has a hamburger for a head... Haha... funny) Dylan
GP-38 A GP-38 is actually a type of diesel locomotive. Anonymous
Grace Impaled  John doe
Grace's Falling This name is taken. I always thought of it as "Falling From God". It can mean so many things, like you fell from grace or your girlfriend Grace fell off a cliff. This was my old band. danny
Grackle Prism Grackles are birds with "iridescent plumage," supposedly. Grackle sounds crunchy. Prism doesn't. Also, part of an attempted googlewhack (try to get only one result from Google). mlu
Gramma Sutra "Long lost John Waters' movie?- or maybe it should be?. princejellyfish
Grammatical Calvinball I use the word 'grammatical' a lot. One time (this is Calvin's quote XD), I said, "All our games end up turning into Calvinball." So, hence, Grammatical Calvinball. therealdeepblue
Grampa Juice Well my grampa asked me to get him some juice so i asked him i wonder what grampa juice tastes like, and my grampa thought it would be a cool name. Jimmy Marshall
Gran Sabor y Super Cronch! I saw this on a cereal box in Mexico. The Spanish bit means "Great Flavor" It would be a funny name, but I don't know for what type of band. Joe Montmatre
Grand Larceny Well, larceny means the act of stealing and theft. So if you are going for that whole metal or something that means theft and breaking the law, the shoe should fit. Zack M
Grand Stylus It's cool because it sounds cool. It's part of a gramaphone, which makes it old school. =D kid rock jack
Grand Theft Daughter This is what I thought the video game "Grand Theft Auto" was called. sam
Grand Theft Lotto I like a play on words. Tom
Grand Theft Otter I believe that it is way cooler than "Grand Theft Daughter". My brother misinterpreted me saying "G.T Daughter". L.A.Gun (find me on b-net)
Grand Theft Panda when i was thinking of a new band name and my friend in my band made up a song about abducting a panda from a zoo comatose
Grand'pa's Magic Pinecone It is/was a real band, and when my buddy saw a concert poster for these guy's, he thought they named it after something dirty. It crack's me up everytime I think 'bout him "spazzing-out" on the street in stark horror. princejellyfish
Grandma Swears > Me Not to be redundant, but COME ON! How weird would it be if the members of the band had grandmothers that swore more than them? This was inspired by my backwards life. The part I'm talking about is the fact that my brother scoulds my grandmother for swearing, not the other way around. How weird is that? 300 Bernard St. Girl
Grandmas in Spandex Whenever I come across something I find disturbing, I try to get it out of my head by thinking of something I find even more disturbing...but kind of funny too. All I could think of one particular time was Grandmas in Spandex and then it hit me. That would be a great band name. Could either work for a comedy rock band or an all-girl punk group. Cat

Grape Without The G because its a take on a stupid emo band, Taking Back Sunday and their song "Cute Without The E", except that it's now "Grape Without The G".  Taking back wednesday
Grapefruit Kiss I was drinking red grapefuit juice the other day, and thought "WoW. This is so good. Sweet but bitter at the same time. Kindof like lost love." Thought it might make for something musical, like a band name, or a song title. Teri
Grass Be Green We where just screwing around talking about something if there weren't certain words. Someone said "grass be green". We just liked it. Shade
Grass of Eden I was listening to this song, and it made me feel like being in a very beautiful garden, just lying on the green grass staring at the clouds, then the name popped out.. Grass of Eden Debby Pangestu

Grease The Priest I was trying to think of a blasphemous band name that was funny and this is what I came up with. Also refers to masturbation. Heh. Jon III
Great At'tuin This is the name of the giant turtle the Discworld rests on. I'm surprised it hasn't been done yet. Crystal

Great Oaks From Little Acorns Me and my friends have an inside joke when someone gets sad, we say "Great oaks from little acorns grow" because our teacher one day was teaching (making us learn AGAIN) about proverbs. SamVK
Great Shirt Alert From an episode of "Cougar Town". Jules just wanted to say it. Brian Kelly
Greater Than or Equal to Jim Because Less Than Jake just sounds so condescending. And my name is Jim. Jim Hat
Greek Fire One of the random name ideas rejected by my band. Greek fire was a liquid the Greeks used that would catch fire when it came into contact with skin. Timone
The Green Chair I have a green chair I sit in on every performance. thats about it, I like it and so do the record companies Chris

Green Toenail Spilled guacamole on my foot. Didn"t wipe it off and grossed out friends an hour later, who thought it was infected.  Mat
Greene Because I like it and it's spelled as some one's name and not the color. Even though some people do have the last name Green as well. I think it works as a good anouncement, like " Ladies & Gentalmen here is... GREENE!" Joe Hobeaux
greethoeven my dog's name is greta but we call her all kinds of things like greethoeven (like ludwig van beethoven the composer), hooten-hoeten, etc. sounds like a great band name, especially if you are dutch. queen of the harpies
Gregory Peck Of Apples It's a before-and-after combination formed from actor Gregory Peck and "peck" as a common dry measure for fruits such as apples. Regina Haniger
Grey Flamingo When flamingos are depressed, they don't eat shrimp which is i think what makes then pink. Whithout shrimp they revert to there natural color: grey. The flamingo's natural and depressed state are the same. The relations to the human condition basically think themsleves up. Great emo band name! Call me Kielty
Grey Skyy It's different and kinda emo, if you would like that. I am starting one called it. I came up with it while thinking black. Well, grey is like black, so there you go. :-D Ranemannnn

Gringo Fare This came from a Mexican restaurant menu... the section listing American, or "gringo" foods, like cheesburgers. LL
Grinning Evil I inspired the name off of those old 70s smiley-face posters that say "Have a nice day". I created a character out of that called Mr. Smiley, a smiley-face that has long hair, a human body, a sicko grin(many teeth), and is a metalhead. From this, I created the band name "Grinning Evil" because Mr. Smiley is an evil bastard. After that, I made Mr. Smiley the mascot of the band. Sounds like a great metal band, eh? ironman
Griswald Splicers ummm... its the old thing they used to make movies out of... where they would take film cut it, and splice in the new film. for editing.....It's really big and takes up the whole room.

Growling Ferret Just visualize a growling ferret! It's hilarious! The cover of the CD would have this demented rodent on it: excellent! Unicorn

Grumpy Thunder Me and some friends were thinking of band names, so we decided to name one adjective and one noun in 5 seconds... Jay89
Grump√©d L√ľngeinch Sitting around trying to come up with a name can be hard. Stumped for names i asked some of my friends for different things; a color, an adjective, a verb, a noun. I got Green, elongated, jump, and bench. Mashing these together and adding accents and umlauts lead to this band name. Gabriel

The Guinea Pigs People who volunteer for experimental testing are called Guinea pigs. Of course, they would also be an experimental rock band. Francis A. Sissy
The Guise The dictionary classifies the term "guise" as being of that of a hidden personna. To be withdrawn socially. It would work out great for a band who idles bands like Slipknot or Mushroom Head. One who is willing to wear a mask up on stage. Cuz you would then be indisguised. hahanincumpoop
